John wanted a Mohawk, so John got a Mohawk!
Yes, we will cut it off before school pictures, but he can keep it for a week or so…
One thing about moving is that you get a chance to really evaluate what you need and don’t need or simply don’t use anymore. We have taken three truckloads to Goodwill of things and we are selling some other things. We decided to sell the tagalongs for the bikes because we don’t need them anymore. More things we won’t have to move!
Today, begins the normal school days for the year. The kids are back to riding the bus to and from school. Our neighbor, Jaxon, got into Ridgeway Elementary this year, so he is now joining the kids on the bus. I made sure to get a picture of all three of them.
Where has the time gone? Today, our girl starts her last year of Elementary School. It hardly seems possible that Laura is in Fifth Grade this year.
John starts Third Grade and he is excited to be one of the big kids in Unit B this year.
We took the kids to school just like we always do on the first day. I, of course, took the standard pictures. Here is the one in front of the school. I suspect this is the last year for first day pictures with both kids in front of the school. I am sure they will NOT let me take pictures of them in front of their Middle School in a few years…
And, this is the one by the sign. As you can see, the sign is under construction. The old one finally rotted out, so the school district is building a new one. Unfortunately, it isn’t complete, but I don’t care. I am taking the picture anyway!
Andy picked the kids up after school and took them to Sonic for a first day ice cream treat. At dinner, it was fun to ask the kids about their days at school again. Both said they had a great day and it was fun to see their friends again. Fifth Grade and Third Grade. Where has the time gone?
